- By Itodo Daniel Sule

The House of Representa­tives yesterday urged the federal government to immortaliz­e the late Prof. Felicia Adebola Adedoyin who composed the National Pledge in 1976.

Daily Trust reports Adedoyin, a princess from the Iji Ruling House of Saki, Oyo State, died on May 1, 2021 after a brief illness.

The call by the House followed the motion on notice by Olajide Olatubosun who said the deceased’s contributi­on deserved special acknowledg­ement by immortaliz­ing her to keep her memories alive.
